Corpse posture with bent legs Shavasana variation

Relaxation and breathing are important ingredients for a healthy back. The corpse posture is a classic position to start the process.

If your back feels uncomfortable, place a pillow or blanket roll under your knees. If your head tilts back, place a folded blanket or small pillow under your head.

1. Lie flat on your back with your arms relaxed along the sides of your torso and your palms up.

2. Bend your knees and place your feet on the floor at hip width.

3. Close your eyes and relax (see Figure 22-1).

4. Stay in the posture for 8 to 10 breaths.
